Vocalized is a singing, musical theatre and band development workshop for 11 – 19-year-olds that builds confidence and self-esteem through music.
In partnership with Youth Action Alliance (YAA), together we aim to provide a safe space for young people to explore and develop their musical talent as well as improving self-confidence and well-being.
We worked across two schools in North Kensington for our first project, culminating in a showcase at The Chelsea Theatre, with our young people performing in choirs, duets, solos, newly formed bands, and a musical theatre group. The project has provided a much-needed creative activity in the area, taught new skills, given the opportunity to learn from industry professionals, nurtured new talent and helped develop a life-long interest in the performing arts for our participants. For most of our students, this is the first time they have taken part in a project like this, and has encouraged students to think about taking music in further education.
